The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) Awards 2026 (up to $10,000)

Jan 1, 2024


The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) Awards 2026 (up to $10,000)


The TWAS Awards (previously called ‘TWAS Prizes’) are awarded to individual scientists from developing countries in recognition of an outstanding contribution to scientific knowledge in nine fields of sciences and/or to the application of science and technology to sustainable development.


To abide by the decision of the TWAS Council taken in November 2018, the cycle of the TWAS Awards will be every two years. Additionally, during the TWAS Council meeting held in Hangzhou, China, on 11 November 2019, the request by UNESCO to change the term ‘prize’ to ‘award’ for all existing and new TWAS distinctions other than medals was approved, and therefore this award scheme is now called ‘TWAS Awards’.


Awards


TWAS provides nine awards of USD $10,000 each (a reduced amount was decided by the TWAS Council in December 2018, and then revised during the Council meeting held in Hangzhou, China, on 11 November 2019) in the following fields: Agriculture, Nutrition & Food Systems Sciences; Biological Sciences; Chemical Sciences; Earth, Climate & Environmental Sciences; Engineering & Computer Sciences; Mathematical Sciences; Medical & Health Sciences; Physics, Astronomy & Space Sciences; Social Sciences.

Each award is accompanied by a plaque.

Awards are usually presented on a special occasion, often coinciding with the General Meeting of TWAS.
